Well who would of known that at the begining of October 2013 ThunderCat Racing UK was embarking on it's biggest recruitment campaign ever... without even realising! The ThunderCat World Championships held in Cornwall proved to be worth it's weight in racing gold! 17 boats have now registered for the 2014 season, so it was only fair the ThunderCat Events team pulled out venues which would not only challenge every team member but provide a platform to showcase why ThunderCat Racing is the largest single class series the UK has to offer!
Stewartby, Bedford - Round 1
19th - 20th April 2014
It's been a few years since the beutifully flat waters of Stewatby Powerboat Club has hosted a round of the RYA National ThunderCat Championship... So we though it would be an idealic setting for the opening round of the 2014 calendar.
Saturday will be a shake down race without National points to allow all the new teams and red mist that may have built up to settle in.
Sunday will be the opening round hopefully with all 17 boats that have registered arriving for a thrilling circuit race.
Watergate Bay, Cornwall - Round 2 & 3
9th - 11th May 2014
Thankfully we didn't scare off our hosts the Extreme Academy and Watergate Bay Hotel who have kindly invited us back in 2014.
Friday will be a training day for all teams - Mandatory for all teams entering the ThunderCat Championship surf events for the first time.
Saturday & Sunday shall be full days racing seeing every team complete 6 heats, with the top 12 going through to the final on both days!
Event moved to Pentewan Sands, St Austell due to
Beautiful beach, surf and more spectators to shake a stick at are just some of the reasons we love this venue. Moving slightly up the coast to Boscombe this year, the sea front has been fully re-developed and become quite a hub now.
